The Health Department's Division of Alcohol & Drug Abuse Programs has selected measures to reflect current priorities. These measures are evidence-based when possible, have been chosen and reviewed with providers, align with strategic plans, and can be calculated from data currently available. These measures are used in many different ways – such as monitoring performance. While we strive for continuous improvement, many of the measures reflect long term goals that involve multiple systems and providers – and these take time and coordinated efforts to change.
Our strategic plan is designed to provide a sustainable, long‐term framework of goals and priorities to guide decision‐making and advance progress to fulfill our vision and mission.
